Creating miniature art demands imagination and incredible physical skill. There is something fascinating about this form of art, it makes us look closer and admire the meticulous skill with which the artist needs to make such beautiful and delicate pieces.
I was really fascinated to see the children slow down and hold these miniature boxes with such care and calmness.
They moved the boxes up and down, ever so smoothly, and did not create any large waves. The physical control to keep those glass balls in their tiny compartments demanded self discipline. Any abrupt movements could dislodge the marbles to jump out.
We used the same process as our shoe box art; the only difference was the size of the boxes and marbles.
Miniature art invites us to draw closer and be in awe at patience needed to work on such a small surface.
